Top January cruise specials


Top Caribbean cruise deals in January

January is the coolest month in the Caribbean making it off-peak season, but as it’s the Caribbean, cool doesn’t mean cold. With temperatures dipping to 26℃ it’s still very much a beach holiday destination, only there’s less crowds and less expense to get you there. Sounds like a win-win situation to us.

Wave season is for cruise what Vogue Online Shopping Night is for fashion. It’s the time of the year when cruise liners go into a frenzy of offering bonuses like free upgrades and onboard credit. That is, on top of cabin sales.

Wave season bargains generally last for three months from January to March and are for sailings throughout the year to various destinations. Check back here for deals as they come in.
